3.0L Pulley Package

When are the pulleys at UnderDog supposed to arrive? They used to have packages but I think the waterpump pulley was out of stock so there weren't any more packages. They were supposed to get there sometime this month and I wondered if anyone had an update on them. I want to get the set and a new belt.

I should have my order in by the end of the week. It all depends on whether or not I get this job. I was offered and accepted but I still have to have my drug test, background check, and physical. I'm a clean person (as in drugs) and i've never commited a crime. I've never even been pulled over. So all should be well. This will compliment my efan nicely. Do you have the raditor hose covers as well? I'd like to get them in red.

EDIT: I found the red cover on your website. I know how to install it, but does the coolant go everywhere? Or does it drain somewhere? And the plug wires did you notice anything over stock? I've got ~60k miles on my truck and already replaced the plugs with Autolite Double Platinums.

You can drain a gallon from the draincock in your radiator and it will not be a messy install. It's a white plastic nut on the bottom of your radiator. If you are in maintenance mode, a flush would definatley not hurt you. If not, drain in a clean bucket and pour it back in the radiator. Pull the upper hose from the outlet and slip this on. On a 3.0 you really need to get a ziptie on each end about an inch before the clamp. On a 4.0 it fits nice without it.

The wires are a tuff call, but at 60,000k it would not be out of the question. Performance would be had if yours were worn out. I wouldn't call it a performance mod on an otherwise good working stock set.

here's a good example of braid and plug wires on a 3.0:

That looks really nice. I might just order the wires and cover as well. I'll decide by the end of the week.

EDIT: Before I drain the whole thing, how much coolant will I need and what type/color?

if I drain it I use 1 gallon of anti freeze then fill it the rest of the way with water.

I use the prestone yellow that is advertised to be good with all makes/all models.

I havent calculated mileage yet for any of the recent mods (Xcal2, pulleys, efan, Borla, new plugs/wires) ive installed, as I havent filled completely up.. i need to take a road trip sometime and see what I get. The underdrive pulley was dyno'd at like 8hp or something like that I believe, but I felt a difference when I put the pulley set on.

Any mileage tests that you have results for will be helpful. Down the road I'm looking at getting an XCal2 as well. An intake as well as headers will be coming someday. It'll probably be this spring.

The install isn't too bad. It depend on if you have an efan. With an efan the install isn't very hard because you have a lot of room under the hood mainly between the radiator and engine block. But if you don't have an efan the install really isn't that much harder. It's all a matter of getting the proper socket length. I think a 1/2" drive with an adaptor to 3/8 and then a deep socket is the proper length but I do believe that there is a how to on the Underdog website. Other than that it's just a matter of removing the belt, removing the pullies with a few bolts per pulley and putting the new ones on.

Mark, it will fit ALL Ranger 3.0's.

Crank pulley is an hour. With the right loaner tool (fan removal tool) and an impact gun for the alternator pulley, all three can be done inside of two hours easily.

Would the new pullys take care of the squeeking noise that the 3.0 is famous for?

Vic. Here is the dyno run I made before and after with my crank pulley. 8HP and 11 torque. (sorry for the late response)

Nate, it did with me and dozens of other guys. It's not because of the pulley, it's because of the gatorback belt that I sell with it. I think a lot of guys can testify that this is the best, quietest belt to use.
